ATLANTA (June 24, 2021) – J.M. Huber Corporation (Huber) is proud to announce that it has been awarded the IMD-Pictet Sustainability in Family Business Award for 2020 by the International Institute for Management Development, a prestigious Swiss business school, and the Pictet Group, a global wealth management company.
This accolade acknowledges family-owned enterprises that stand out for their efforts, performance and progress in the area of sustainability. More than 60 international family businesses from four continents were considered for this significant global award.
The independent jury highlighted the Huber family’s commitment to sustainability and the company’s clear demonstration of a will to transform itself, including the representation of sustainability on the Board of Directors and the Huber Principles, which underpin its focus on the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) of People, Planet & Profit when making critical business decisions.
Respecting the environment, treating employees well and being a good neighbor in the communities where Huber operates have all been part of the Company’s DNA since its founding in 1883. Huber’s TBL Sustainability Strategy is both a reflection and a strengthening of these goals.
“This important recognition signifies our substantial progress over the last decade in making Huber a more sustainable company by strengthening our culture, reducing our environmental footprint and enhancing the communities where we operate,” says Mike Marberry, President & CEO of J.M. Huber Corporation. “Winning the IMD-Pictet Sustainability in Family Business Award will certainly inspire us to become even bolder in driving an ambitious long-term sustainability vision for Huber.”
Huber was a close runner-up for the 2019 award and previously won the IMD Global Family Business Award in 2013.
